Our aim is to raise enough to provide the children with start up supplies of camping and survival equipment needed to begin regular sessions

In a time when technology is increasingly distracting, the old ways of play, exploration and adventure are being lost. Tweens and teens find themselves without activities and stimulation which turns to boredom and more often results in trouble.

We often forget that teenagers are still children at heart and in a world that is demanding them to be more grown up at younger and younger ages they need a healthy, safe but ultimately playful environment to explore the world and understand things they now only experience in books or on a screen.

Survivor Nation is aimed at providing this environment, where they will learn skills such as preparing a camp site, set up a tent/tarp, starting a fire, preparing and cooking food, whittling, camping safety and first aid, exploring their surroundings and much more.

So how is this different from scouts or army cadets? Well first and foremost this is based entirely on being outside from day one, nothing is off limits and there’s everything to learn. Children learn primarily by seeing and doing which is called kinaesthetic learning so they will immediately have opportunities to do things that they never thought they could.

The excitement created by doing activities like lighting a fire or turning a piece of wood into something practicle or cooking something for yourself to eat creates an amazing sense of achievement and independence that is primal by its very essence a state which simply can not be achieved in a classroom.

Why Survival Nation? Put simply we will teach your children to be confident, independent, self sufficient, capable team players with a limitless desire to be adventurous, free thinking and risk taking to achieve goals that will give them the confidence to do what they set their minds too.
